Upcoming Events and the ABC Series to Managing Food and Diabetes

  I am so excited to introduce a new series of events for The Diabetes Coach. I want to share all of our upcoming events with you. Please take a look at the ”Events” tab to see which ones might benefit you or your loved one.

I am thrilled to be starting new support groups in Scottsdale (second Wednesday of the month) and now launching a Support Group in Mesa, AZ. I am also honored to announce the upcoming ABC’s of Diabetes and Food Series with Chef Steve, Norton. Steve and I will present a series breaking down the complications that most of us have with food, food preparation, menu planning, traveling, eating at school and work and others. The ABC Series will reveal that healthy eating can be simple, easily applied to a busy lifestyle and that managing your life with diabetes does not have to be overwhelming all the time. I am proud to introduce Steve M. Norton:

Steve Norton has been involved in the hospitality industry for the past 30 years. He attended New York’s prestigious Culinary Institute of America before joining the Special Event industry, in which he was actively involved for 15 years. He has served on the International Special Event Advisory Board and has been recognized by his peers with several industry Gala Awards for his stunning, unequivocal design and production accomplishments. He also penned a column on event and menu planning for OC FLAIR, a lifestyle magazine in Orange County, California.
Five years ago, he decided to change his focus and began managing 4 estates for a family in Northern California. One of the services he provided was that of a private Chef. He was able to
share his knowledge and expertise in healthy eating, which included menu planning, managing a food budget and cooking with fresh ingredients.

In 2006, Steve was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, but really didn’t pay much attention to it despite the fact that both of his parents and 2 of his siblings had been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes years earlier. In November 2012, he suffered a life-changing hemorrhagic stroke. At that point, the doctors also decided that it was essential that he start taking insulin to control his sugar levels. Along with his rehab recovery, he was determined to control his diabetes through healthy eating habits. He did this through educating himself about type 2 diabetes, menu planning, portion control, sensibly shopping and a healthy lifestyle. Due to this approach, he has been able to stop taking insulin, lost 54 pounds and has been able to maintain his A1C within normal ranges.

Steve’s approach to Diabetes is that he will control it; it will not control him or his life. One of his favorite quotes is “Life’s a banquet and most people are starving to death!”

Come and join us in this opportunity to learn and live better lives! Steve is an amazing example of a “can do” attitude and I expect some great tips for all of us! Register today at: http://www.diabeteslifestylecoach.com/events-2/

I look forward to seeing you there!
